'We'll have a strawberry shake waiting'
I would like to salute my hero, husband, best friend, and world's greatest father! He is my rock, and everything I wake up for in the morning. Currently SrA Brandon Talley is on deployment for the USAF in the Middle East as an aircraft mechanic for the RC-135. Although he was gone for his son's first Thanksgiving we have hopes for him coming home before Christmas. This photo was taken an hour before he had to leave us at his favorite restaurant, Red Robin. We will have a strawberry shake waiting for him when he gets home. We love and miss him dearly! God Bless all of our Troops, you are all heroes!!
